If there is someone that can be considered recession-proof, it is “Real Housewives of Atlanta” (RHOA) star, Kandi Burruss. The Atlanta-based artist keeps a job. From songwriting to reality television to acting and producing, Burruss lives out her season 14 tagline: “I ain’t never skipped a beat or a bag.”
Kandi Burruss first hit the public scene in 1992 as a member of the R&B group Xscape. Signed to So So Def Records, the four ladies in the group gave the world R&B hits like “Just Kickin’ It,” “Understanding,” and “Who Can I Run To.”
Once the group disbanded before reuniting years later, Burruss continued her music career but mainly as a producer and songwriter. In her solo career, she wrote for an array of artists, including Destiny’s Child, TLC, and Alicia Keys.
Although Burruss’ music career should never be slept on, she did not lock herself in a box. You can find the entertainer in several television roles, executive producing plays, leading her adult toy line, and heading her restaurants.
All of Burruss’ work endeavors led her to amass a fortune valued at $30 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
In addition to her massive workload, the “Legs, Hips, Body” singer is a wife to entrepreneur Todd Tucker. Together, they have four children, benefiting from their parent’s legacy.
